Three very talented women in Australia, who shared a passion for crafting, started this site in June of 2013. Perfectly Rustics continues to host bi-weekly ( fortnightly) challenges on a variety of themes. I have enjoyed visiting their site regularly since last fall to be inspired, encouraged, and motivated, and I really feel that my regular participation in these challenges has helped me to become a better card maker.
While I am extremely honored to have been asked, I am also a bit nervous since I have never done this before and have always looked to the design team samples for inspiration. (I saw the first challenge topic for which I would need to do a sample, and my first thought was, “I wonder what the design team did with this.” Then I realized, that’s my job now!) I am very excited to give this my best shot, and I hope that I can add value to their site and provide inspiration and encouragement to others as I have received in the past.
Whether you enjoy card making, scrapbooking or off the page projects, I hope to see you and your wonderful creations soon over at Perfectly Rustics! And tell your friends to join us too!
Oh, and one more thing… I am “Time Zone Challenged” and had a heck of a time figuring out the corresponding time here in Cherry Hill, NJ where I live with the time in Australia to know when the challenges end!
As I mentioned above, the challenges are fortnightly (they last for two weeks) that end at 11.59 p.m. (AEST) on the date posted for each challenge. Here is a Time Zone Converter to figure out when they end wherever you happen to live!
Thanks for checking out my post!
